Wavefront Energy & Environmental Services Inc. Enters Into Agreement With Energex Oil Inc. to Implement the Powerwave™ Process in Texas

EDMONTON, AB--(Marketwire - October 3, 2007) - Wavefront Energy and Environmental Services Inc. (TSX-V: WEE) (PINKSHEETS: WEESF) ("Wavefront"), a leader in technology development and implementation for improved oil recovery and optimized groundwater remediation is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Energex Oil Inc. ("Energex"), a privately held oil exploration and production company located in Colorado Springs, CO to implement Powerwave in an oil field lease in Knox County, Texas.

Under the terms of the agreement Wavefront will provide on-going technical support for the development plan as well as six Powerwave tool systems. Energex will act as the operator and will fund lease development. For its participation in the development of the lease Wavefront will receive a five percent gross overriding royalty on oil production.

The current development plan consists of a 330-acre unit with 21 wells presently accessible for use in a waterflood. Historically, there were 30 wells drilled by Union Oil of California, which produced 1,256,495 barrels of oil from the Tannehill sands that underlie this acreage at a depth of approximately 2000 feet. The Tannehill sands are prolific producers in numerous fields within the Permian basin and particularly in Knox County. In 1969, the acreage was unitized into the East Voss (Tannehill) Sand Unit and a partial waterflood project was initiated for secondary oil recovery. To date the secondary recovery of oil is approximately 837,000 barrels, thus bringing the total recovery to just less than 2,100,000 barrels of oil from the three Tannehill sands. Energex reports that a complete sand analysis of the Tannehill sands using well logs and available core data indicates that the 330-acre unit may have a total recoverable volume of approximately 2,633,000 barrels of oil equating to a possible 550,000 additional barrels of oil over the current total produced amounts.

Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson stated, "Energex has thoroughly reviewed Powerwave and the beneficial results that it can bring to mature assets in order to maximize ultimate oil recovery. The prospect of implementing Powerwave in Knox County is further endorsement of the process and continues to demonstrate the credibility it is acquiring in the oil sector. Wavefront is pleased to be working with Energex on this project, and we fully anticipate both parties entering into similar agreements in the near future."

Energex President and CEO Douglas Pedrie commented, "We are very excited to be working with Wavefront, its management, and team of professionals. The Tannehill sand has historically been a good formation for waterflood and with the additional benefit of Powerwave, we believe significant improvements in production and recovery can be achieved. Energex and Wavefront will be actively seeking additional opportunities for subsequent applications of Powerwave in mature assets where secondary recovery was abandoned or not attempted due to poor primary recovery."
